Yes, and as was posted in the BOG last year, they couldn't walk if they had a pair like PBO.

Sorry for the reference, but that's the refrain of the American Idol corps of online political warriors.

They miss this guy. And The Beloved Pair...

Yes, their time travel skills are impressive. They'd say Obama should have gone back and...

Eliminated all evil from before his birth in the Kenyan province of Hawaii.

But they do have a point about PBO and the alphabet agencies. Here's the proof. He's been one of them for many years...

Forget Kenya. Never mind the secret madrassas. The sinister, shocking truth about Barack Obama’s past lies not in east Africa, but in outer space. As a young man in the early 1980s, Obama was part of a secret CIA project to explore Mars. The future president teleported there, along with the future head of Darpa...

Obama wasn’t the only one making the otherworldly voyage. As “Barry Soetero,” the 19-year-old Obama was one of 10 youths selected to secretly teleport to and from Mars, forming a band of interplanetary Teen Titans. Regina Dugan, the director of Darpa, was another member. Between 1981 and 1983, Obama is supposed to have visited Mars twice, by way of a teleportation chamber called a “jump room.” Basiago, a fellow chrononaut, told the website Exopolitics that he saw Obama “walk back to the jump room from across the Martian terrain.” To acknowledge his comrade, Obama is said to have told Basiago, “'We’re here'” - apparently, “with some sense of fatalism.”

It is not known what exactly Obama did on Mars. (Socializing Martian health care, perhaps? Building a birth-certificate printing press?) His mission was a perilous one, according to Basiago and Stillings. The CIA wished to “establish a defense regime protecting the Earth from threats from space” as well as a legal claim to “territorial sovereignty,” making Obama something of a Martian conquistador. Presumably, Obama’s CIA handlers needed him to “acclimate Martian humanoids and animals to their presence” in order to secure the U.S.-Martian alliance. (We’ll bet you weren’t even aware of Martian animals.)

“Simply put, your task is to be seen and not eaten,” an elder chrononaut, retired Army Maj. Ed Dames, is alleged to have told a young Obama...


Personally, I think Danger Room is onto something with this story. It all makes perfect sense. And I appreciate Obama having our back against any extra-terrestrial menace. And I'm glad he didn't get eaten.

Unfortunately, the White House has denied this trip. But I don't believe them on this one. No, I believe this. Just because I just want to, and it fits in with my view of the cosmos.

No one can ever make me believe differently. So take that... Uh, anyone.

From an overgrown boy who has never... convinced a woman to bed him, no doubt. (Self-censored, LOL.)

How many amendments does this guy believe in, anyway?

Probably just the 2nd and the 10th...

None of the other amendments apply to his douchebaggery.

Sorry, GOP and Libertarian apologists, I'm with this guy:

On Civil Liberties, Comparing Obama With Bush Is Easy — And Mostly Wrong

June 14th, 2013 by Joe Conason

...Consider the single most important surveillance controversy of the Bush era, namely the warrantless wiretapping undertaken on the president’s orders. In December 2005, the New York Times revealed that Bush had authorized the NSA to monitor phone calls and emails originating in U.S. territory, without obtaining warrants as required by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA. (That’s why it was called “warrantless.”) For the first time since Watergate – and the intelligence reforms resulting from that true scandal — the U.S. government had eavesdropped on Americans’ conversations without seeking the permission of a judge.

Only months before, Bush had claimed publicly that he was a steward of civil liberties and that his agents always got a court order before implementing a wiretap. But his administration had been using warrantless wiretaps ever since the 9/11 attacks.

Those trespasses against liberty went considerably further than the collection of metadata by the NSA. No reports indicate that the Obama administration violated existing law to eavesdrop on any American — or listened to any calls without the sanction of the special FISA court.

Yet reaction to the recent stories about the NSA’s policies has been far more intense than eight years ago. Pundits and politicians have compared Obama unfavorably with Richard Nixon, berating him as a tyrannical betrayer of civil liberties. A few prominent Republicans even seem determined to ruin the NSA, solely because they wish to embarrass the president – a motive that other Republicans attribute to Snowden, whom they vilify as a traitor...


I haven't got time for this right now, but found it through one of my older websites. Whose motto is:

Why does the Republican Party zealously pursue policies so obviously counter to the best interests of ordinary Americans?

Since the New Deal, Republicans have been on the wrong side of every issue of concern to ordinary Americans; Social Security, the war in Vietnam, equal rights, civil liberties, church- state separation, consumer issues, public education, reproductive freedom, national health care, labor issues, gun policy, campaign-finance reform, the environment and tax fairness. No political party could remain so consistently wrong by accident.

The only rational conclusion is that, despite their cynical "family values" propaganda, the Republican Party is a criminal conspiracy to betray the interests of the American people in favor of plutocratic and corporate interests, and absolutist religious groups.

Why? Because they're:

Exposing the ugly truth about the Republican Party's diabolical plot to replace constitutional democracy with an oligarchic fascist theocracy...

It's the only rational explanation!

With which I agree, and thought the BOG might enjoy that little rant. And since my pal IrishAyes will send a hunting party to drag me back kicking and screaming if I leave DU, I promise to be back in just a little bit. LOL!

ProSense has focus:




And the same ALEC bill was passed by adding it to other bills in two red states this past week. With no debate. The GOP are suspending the rights of not only women, but every other group in the country, state by state.

Or in the case of the HoR, nationally with the bill the GOP passed that is either identical to the one in Texas. I have been involved in this for nearly half a century, marching, organizing voters, going into legislatures and working with coalitions for the rights of women, workers, minorities and environmental causes.

I was just going over some pictures to scan that are over 40 years old of our coalition getting arrested after months of organzing and preparing ourselves. That was on our environmental actions. I'm filing it with video of us in anti-war demonstrations that we traveled coast to coast.

Some of us came out of Austin, TX., some out of Orange County, CA. The largest was in D.C. with a quarter million according to park service records, followed by one in L.A. that I will never forget. Solidarity was high at both events, but more so at L.A. It's important to feel emotional support, and there are few things to strenghten one's spirit and resolve more than being in a crowd of tens of thousands of like minded people, but they are more of celebratory events than changing the system. You have to do what we called 'going into the belly of the beast' to do that.

We learned that earlier, but also that day we heard Kerry who with VVAW members were leaders in our groups. Only one Democratic representative made a public appearance with that one demonstration, it all was our own groups speaking for the most part. Although we had the support of Democrats and community groups throughout the states and helping us get into where we needed to be, not as Democrats, but anti-war activists.

Kerry testified in the Winter Soldier hearings, and told them that if elected officials did not end the war now, they would return again to 'transform' the government to do so. That is exactly what happened and we won many victories on civil rights of every kind and the environment.

Now we have people getting out the vote in Texas as it was predicted last year. Now to 2014, to put these Koch puppets out of office. Go through the list of ALEC legislative supporters in your region. No one should let the Kochoctopus write their laws. This is exactly what Nordquist said they intended last year. They put Romney on the ballot to be Grover Nordquist's Robosigner-in-Chief:

All we have to do is replace Obama... We are not auditioning for fearless leader. We don't need a president to tell us in what direction to go. We know what direction to go. We want the Ryan budget...

We just need a president to sign this stuff. We don't need someone to think it up or design it. The leadership now for the modern conservative movement for the next 20 years will be coming out of the House and the Senate.

Pick a Republican with enough working digits to handle a pen to become president of the United States. This is a change for Republicans: the House and Senate doing the work with the president signing bills. His job is to be captain of the team,to sign the legislation that has already been prepared.

~ Grover Nordquist

The bills being passed which the GOP refuse to debate, cannot be argued by them because they did not write them. I've seen these and they are written up just like legislation, but not by any legislator. They are complete when they arrive to be read on the floor to be voted on, and the GOP will pull any trick to match sure they're passed. They don't believe in consensus.

ALEC wrote all these bills, RTW, SYG, voting restrictions, taking away health care, food and housing to the poor and destroying the 4th amendment rights of women and LGBTs. They do not listen to any reasoning or expert testimony, they are simply putting into effect the plan.

Don't just talk about them in the street, meet them in their faces, but more importantly, find allies to take them down. Then inform and register people to vote them out of office. The GOP are more afraid of that than anything else. Occupy tactics do not work behind closed doors, which is how these things were passed with GOP majorities without public voices. The public method of Occupy needs to register voters to put these people out of office. They will not stop, their script has been handed to them and they are well-funded and rewarded for carrying it out.

Good luck.

For which I am grateful, niyad, to people like that, you and Sheshe and all who post on it.

Yes, I trashed that thread when I saw the wrecking decided to go in for the kill there.

Give me PM. Hekate, whenever you want. Several people have PM'd me to say they can't take the unrestrained hatred and personal attacks here.

I saw someone go off on you last night, too, and another went off on me on the same thread. what he said didn't make much sense, but the hate was clear. I had not supported the idol. While I don't think the one that went off on you is a Paulbot, jhe ust felt it personally, he was out of line to pitch a fit on you.

Many of the others have a missionary fanaticism indicative of Paulites. This site is being disrupted big time. And we know from Galreida's OP that their home page has said to meet here.

Not for our own good, of course. For the purpose of ratfucking Democrats and electing Rand in 2016. They are cursing anyone who disagrees with them - the vitriol is very telling. And there is no redress for it, as there is in election season.

But really, we're in that season right now. 2010 was not created in 2010, but 2009, by the same Koch forces using the same tools as now.

I hope you will post at the BOG, but why should we be relegated to hanging out in a safe haven, as if we have no right to speak?

Sad stuff. maddening insanity here.

'Beware the wrath of a patient man.' Memorable.

So do I. You know what matters:

fleetwood mac - oh well (1969)

I can't help about the shape I'm in
I can't sing, I ain't pretty and my legs are thin
But don't ask me what I think of you
I might not give the answer that you want me to

Oh well

Now, when I talked to God I knew he'd understand
He said, "Stick by me and I'll be your guiding hand
But don't ask me what I think of you
I might not give the answer that you want me to"

Oh well
